We both still stink, y'all.

The Kings had reason to believe that they'd be better this year. So did the Warriors.

Son of a bitch.

We have their old coach now, drawing this sad rivalry into a new zone of uncomfortable familiarity. The games are fun, but thinking about the teams sure isn't. The Warriors are getting marvelous work from Monta Ellis and a bounceback from David Lee and ... sit at 6-12. The Kings have seen DeMarcus Cousins become a machine and are getting something out of Jimmer Fredette and ... sit at 6-14. Even when things go right, they don't seem to go right enough.

To have these teams good together would be magic. We see what's happening in L.A. with the Lakers and Clippers, building a truly local rivalry that dominates the news cycle when they play. That'd be wonderful up here, a real Sactown-Bay rivalry in the only place there can really be a rivalry. How many more decades do we need before it comes together?

In the meantime, we find comfort in what are usually hilariously head-shaking games. Let's hope Mark Jackson doesn't grind this one down too much, and let's hope Keith Smart's got something for his old team.

Game at 7:30. Game threads at 7:30 and 9. Let's go Kings!
